Based on data from an experiment which ran for ten years, this book summarizes the results of the Atmospheric Physics Department of the St. Petersburg University and the Main Geophysical Observatory. The processed data now forms a rich dataset of spectral values of radiative characteristics under different atmospheric conditions. The analysis of this database clearly shows that the solar radiative absorption in a dusty and cloudy atmosphere is significantly higher than assumed to date. Both graduate students of atmospheric sciences as well as scientists and researchers in the field of meteorology and climatology will find a wealth of new data and information in this monograph.

Solar radiation in the atmosphere
Theoretical base of solar irradiance and radiance calculation in the Earth's atmosphere
Spectral measurements of solar irradiance and radiance in clear and cloudy atmosphere
Problems of retrieval atmospheric parameters from observation of radiative characteristics
Determination of parameters of the atmosphere and surface from data of airborne observation of spectral solar irradiance in clear atmosphere
Analytical method of inverse problem solution for cloudy atmosphere
Application of inverse asymptotic formulas to the analysis of radiative observations in cloudy atmosphere
